    Dear teachers,

    Here are two sentences from an English text. Would you be kind enough to explain to me the twofold usage of the three equal terms in the latter of them.

    I've been doing something for the last 16 years (and one thing for 12 years) which has created a paper-avalanche for me.The avalanche is dosh, money, cash - you know the useful stuff to buy what we want/need/like!

    dosh = Brit. slang money

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Re: dosh,money,cash/want,need,like

    The author is using repeat terms as emphasis.

    dosh = money
